Why See Cabaret?
In Here, life is beautiful
A doomed romance in a city that dances on the edge of oblivion, Cabaret is one of the true classics of musical theatre, weaving together strands of debauchery and terror to capture a moment in time, that despite warning, is ever in danger of being repeated.
Featuring the unforgettable music of Kander and Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff, (based on the novel Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood,) it is the story of an American writer and an entrancing showgirl who find themselves in Weimar era Berlin, as the shadow of fascism grows in the country. From inside the decadence surrounds of the Kit Kat club, they and their fellow artists, creatives, freaks and weirdos attempt to eek every last bit of freedom before the Nazis take over.
Timely, entertaining and indelible once experienced, don't miss this revival when it dances into the San Francisco Playhouse summer 2019.
Opening night: 26 June 2019

Filled with rap, pop, R&B and jazz, it's marvellously dense, visually and aurally, and dramatic. And though they flow seamlessly, the scenes-slash-songs, both personal and political are works of art unto themselves.

A masterpiece of creative compression that is at once arrestingly original and faithful to its source material
